{real event} Baseball Themed Bar Mitzvah

One of the best parts about being an event planner is helping my clients come up with fun ideas & designs for their event and then watching the vision come alive! Bar Mitzvahs are so much fun because they’re usually themed, full of personality and have lots of room for creativity with the goal of having fun and celebrating!

This party was definitely a blast. Although the overall theme was baseball, we wanted the event to be modern & classy vs. cheesy & themed so we tried to incorporate baseball elements without going over the top. The final color palette: navy, lime green and white with pops of yellow & red. STEMS floral design did a great job of blending classy and baseball with the wooden box centerpieces & baseball filled vases.

I think the highlight of the day was watching the guest-of-honor and his mom dance because it was such an endearing moment. The kids danced the afternoon away with energetic entertainment from SpotlightLA & devoured the Sweet Lucies Ice Cream & “concessions stand.” Let’s just say 5 minutes into the party the candy centerpieces were completely empty!
